Each year the University honors members of the faculty and staff who have demonstrated excellence in their teaching, research and community service. OFDAS administers the selection process for the Board of Regents' Medal for Excellence in Teaching, Presidential Citation for Meritorious Teaching, Frances Davis Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, and Robert W. Clopton Award for Distinguished Community Service and has pioneered the development of a quantitative screening and qualitative peer review procedure. OFDAS also assists the Chancellor's office with the annual Mānoa Awards Ceremony, which recognizes these and other Mānoa award recipients.
